Why can’t #WTTV20 go on?

Because of the coronavirus, the government announced new national measures on April 21, 2020. Among other things, the government has decided to ban all events until September 1, 2020. Unfortunately, this also means that Welcome to The Village cannot take place on 17, 18 and 19 July. This is of course very unfortunate, but public health is the most important thing at the moment. Next year we will be back on July 16, 17 and 18 and we will all make it the most beautiful edition of WTTV ever! <3

When will WTTV2021 take place?

On 16, 17 and 18 July 2021 we will rebuild the most beautiful temporary festival village in the world in the Groene Ster, just outside Leeuwarden. Let’s all make it the most memorable edition ever!

What will happen with DORP 2020?

We are investigating whether our innovation lab DORP can take place elsewhere in 2020. Follow the DORP facebook page for the latest updates.

How can I help WTTV?

You would help us tremendously by not requesting a refund for your already purchased ticket, but leaving your ticket for # WTTV21 or even donating all or part of the amount.

Have you not bought a ticket but would like to help? You can do this by making a donation via this link



But most of all, you can help us and the rest of the Netherlands by following the guidelines of the RIVM; keep your distance, stay in, wash your hands, and stay healthy!

Also think about your fellow people, be kind to each other, send a postcard via Omapost, help your favorite artists by streaming their music extra or buying merchandise in their web shops, and support your local catering industry by ordering from them or a purchase voucher. Together we are strong!
